Mental Health Support in Tameside and Glossop

Mental health is just like physical health: everybody has it and we need to take care of it.
 
Mental health includes our emotional, psychological, and social well-being. It affects how we think, feel, and act. It also helps determine how we handle stress, relate to others, and make choices. Mental health is important at every stage of life, from childhood and adolescence through adulthood.
 
Mental health problems affect around one in four people in any given year. They range from common problems, such as depression and anxiety, to rarer problems such as schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. 50% of all lifetime mental illness will be established by age 14, and 75% by the time a person reaches their mid-twenties.

Good mental health means being generally able to think, feel and react in the ways that you need and want to live your life. But if you go through a period of poor mental health you might find the ways you're frequently thinking, feeling or reacting become difficult, or even impossible, to cope with. This can feel just as bad as a physical illness, or even worse.

It’s important to understand when you might need to get some help or support with how you are feeling – or to know when perhaps you may be experiencing a more serious problem.  Currently in Tameside and Glossop there are number of options to support people who are struggling with their mental health.
